It looks as though Snooki's baby is going to be a great addition to her young family. The television star - real name Nicole Polizzi - says she is already enjoying motherhood after giving birth to her son Lorenzo Dominic LaValle on August 26, 2012, in New Jersey. The 24-year-old and her finace Jionni LaValle became parents for the first time.

Tweeting to her fans this week, Snooki said, "I am SO IN LOVE with my son Lorenzo Dominic! Being a mom is an amazing feeling!!! I love my little man to death!", before adding, "Post birth isn't so comfy and glamorous. But my son is Fabulous. All the pain and anxiety is so worth it!!!". The Jersey Shore star later admitted that she's making the most of post-pregnancy, saying, "Hardly any sleep but SO worth it! I'm finally able to eat eggs again! While I was pregnant I couldn't even smell them! Now I'm killing it with egg whites!!! YUM". The couple announced their baby news and engagement back in March, with the reality star saying she wanted her first child before walking down the aisle. At the time, she told MTV News, "I mean, I do have a dream wedding. But I definitely don't even want to talk about it or think about it because I'm not even ready for it yet. I just want my baby first".

Snooki and JWoww premiered their spin-off series on Mtv in June. A second season was confirmed for August 3, 2012.
